mouz drop out of EMS One last minute
With a big contingent of players already in Poland's Tychy and the rest on their way it's finally official that all-Danish team mousesports will not be making the trip, as indeed they've been struggling for a while now with overhauling their roster, announced officially just short of two months ago for the purpose of taking part in this season of RaidCall EMS One. They will be replaced by French team Against All Authority.
mousesports were one of the direct invites for this season of RaidCall EMS One due to their position as winners of the Summer season, which caused quite a bit of furor as all but one player of the squad had been changed, leaving only Troels 'syndereN' Nielsen from the old squad behind. However, mouz did manage to silence some of the critics with good early showings including securing their spot for the EMS One LAN finals.
This started taking a turn for the worse as Marcus 'Ace' Hoelgaard went on a two week school trip, which forced the team to play with stand-in's. Over time it also became clear that there was some strife within the team and changes were made. The team was seem scrimming with another fellow Dane, Jonathan 'Unicornxoxo' Arge in place of syndereN, and eventually also playing official matches with him. Since then Sylvester 'Link' Hoelgaard has also disappeared from the active rotation, with German player Mete Han 'Exist' Aksüt becoming a regular stand-in for the team in official games.
With further players unofficially leaving the team as well since then, mouz were looking at attending EMS One with a mostly stand-in roster, as was told to us upon inquiry a few days ago by ESL staff members. However as certain players named as intended stand-in's for the tournament informed us they would not be attending after all, we have since then been trying to reach out to mouz regarding comment about the future of the team, on which the organization has so far remained silent.
Still, ESL has now announced that mouz will officially not be attending the event and will be replaced by French team against All authority who have previously taken part in the RaidCall EMS One seasons, coming up short in Group B for a place at the main event. aAa also took part in the previous seasons LAN Finals of the RaidCall EMS One under the name of Imaginary Gamming. aAa are presumed to be joining Na`Vi, Sigma.Int and ViCi-Gaming in Group A.
